Year 7 are knitting baby blankets for Special Care Unit

Year 7 students have spent some of their tutor time recently learning to knit. They are starting with squares which will be sewn together to make baby blankets. These will be donated to the Special Care Baby Unit at Kettering General Hospital by Mrs E Wright, Pastoral Leader for Year 7, who has been encouraging the whole school community to contribute to this cause close to her heart.

“It’s very frustrating learning to knit but it’s worth it because it’s for a really good cause. If I finish my square by 2020 I’ll be impressed!” said Harley as he made his first attempt.

Most of the class were trying knitting for the first time, but some were able to help their classmates learn. “My Nan taught me to knit and she has already made 5 squares for the blankets. It’s nice to help others in the class to learn a new skill” said Grace.
